Why a massage therapist and Feng Shui Consultant/artist?
While bodywork looks at energy and its blockages; Feng Shui looks at energy and its blockages in one's environment. Shortly after graduating, I discovered a dilemma. Many Westerners shy away from making traditional feng shui changes because they don't relate to the cure/adjustment - an example being Chinese coins and bamboo flutes. So I created and designed a line of products that use feng shui principles, but also fit into modern Western homes without someone walking in and saying, "Oh, you've made a feng shui adjustment." The criteria for my products were they needed to be uniquely designed (not something manufactured on an assembly line); green (for the most part); use natural resources without destroying the ecological balance (sustainable); use nature's constructive cycle (The 5 Element Theory); be beautiful and yet have intention; and help connect people back to the Earth.

Chi ei Tsang is a non-invasive method of abdominal massage. It makes use of the energy flow of all major systems in the body. CNT frees the blockages in the abdomen and guides the healing energy through the entire body.
Massage can stimulate or calm the nervous system, depending upon what is required by the individual, thus helping reduce fatigue and leaving the client with a feeling of replenished energy. At its best, massage has the potential to restore the individual physically, mentally and emotionally.
Although a single massage will be helpful, the effects of massage are cumulative, and a series of massage treatments will bring the greatest benefit.
Massage is one of the oldest, simplest forms of therapy, using stroking, pressing and kneading areas of the body to relieve pain, relax, stimulate and tone the body. Massage works soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments) to improve muscle tone. Although it largely affects those muscles just under the skin, benefits can also reach deeper layers of muscle and organs. Massage stimulates blood circulation, assists the lymphatic system, circulatory system and helps the elimination of waste throughout the body.
Regular massage can have the effect of strengthening and toning the entire body mechanism, thus preventing strains and injuries that might occur due to excess tension and any resulting structural weakness.

I have ben going to LaRae for therapeutic massage for the past 23 years. I go once a month. The deep tissue massage keeps my muscles tuned up so there is less chance of injury with all of the heavy lifting I do at my job. It also has been helping my spastic bladder/incontinence issues. Thank you LaRae for all the good treatments. I don't know where I'd be without you.
